    Hitler's Supercity.

    Hitler caused more death and destruction than anyone else in history. But he also planned to build on a massive scale and place a new Germany on a par with ancient Greece and Rome. Our investigators piece together a picture of how Hitler wanted Germany to look from the ruins of what was built and from plans of his architect Albert Speer. In Nuremberg, we recreate the Zeppelin Tribune: where 60,000 people could overlook a parade ground. We reveal the real purpose of the stadium Speer planned to hold the Olympic Games--with seating for 405,000 people. And we rebuild, with computer-generated images based on Speer's plans, the monuments Hitler planned for himself: the Triumphal Arch--twice the height, and four times the width of Paris's Arc de Triomphe--and the People's Hall--a structure so big the Eiffel Tower could fit inside it. Monstrous, intimidating, built on slave labor--this is the Lost World we'd now inhabit if WWII had gone differently.

    High Hitler.

    Adolf Hitler dreamt of creating a master race, but achieved a Holocaust--the murder of millions of Jews and those deemed physical or mental defects. But the F hrer, an appalling hypochondriac, abused laxatives and suffered from stomach cramps and embarrassing flatulence. And that was just the start! When he committed suicide in 1945, the great dictator was frail with tremors and a shuffling walk--a feeble condition concealed from the world. We explore the relationship between Hitler and his personal physician, Dr. Theodore Morell. How did amphetamine abuse, Parkinson's Disease, and tertiary syphilis impact on his state of mind?

    CIA and the Nazis.

    Six months after Allied Forces liberated German concentration camps, a military tribunal formed at Nuremberg to prosecute Nazi war criminals. Some of the most dangerous were brought to justice--but not all. Over 4,000 former Nazis went to work for the US government, without the public's knowledge, to help fight the Soviet Union. Reinhard Gehlen, an intelligence officer for Hitler's General Staff, was tapped to head the US intelligence program in West Germany to spy on the Russians. At the same time, former Nazi scientists and engineers were welcomed onto American soil. In 1998, a bill was finally signed into law that mandated declassification of documents concerning recruitment of former Nazis. We dig into the records to see if the ends justified the means and ask how far the US should go to partner with a former enemy to fight another.

    April 15-21.

    The Red Army's assault on Berlin begins. Meanwhile, Hitler, sealed away in his bunker, marks his 56th birthday. US General Alexander Patch's 7th Army captures the city of Nuremberg in southern Germany. In the East, the Soviet Government and the Provisional Communist Government of Poland conclude a treaty of mutual assistance. In the Pacific, fierce fighting continues on Okinawa. American soldiers are finding the Japanese to be a savvy and tenacious enemy. Ernie Pyle, one of World War Two's most distinguished and revered correspondents, is fatally wounded on Okinawa. US forces complete the capture of the islands in Manila Bay. Join us for a week-by-week detailed look at the last days of World War Two.

    The Sun Never Sets

    As WWII begins, England stands alone, paying the price of treaty limitations that allowed Germany and Japan to secretly build more powerful ships. Though England can't spare ships from the Atlantic to pursue the Japanese, after VE Day, her carriers prove decisive elements in the Pacific. After WWII, the Empire and the Royal Navy decline as a world force. But the 1982 Falklands War revives the Navy, and today, its nuclear subs and jump-jet carriers attest to its centuries-old history and tradition.

    Tanks.

    In this episode, we look at the development of the tank and the monster that is the M1A2, which was developed to counter heavy Soviet tanks, but is so heavy that it can't cross bridges and can't be airlifted quickly to battle zones. We also chart the revolutionary change in thinking in the Army that led to a much more lightweight tank with a totally new gun that emphasizes accuracy over weight!

    Soviet Top-Secret Weapons.

    During the Cold War, much of the Soviet Union's economy went into developing weapons. With paranoia about US technical superiority at a height, even the craziest sounding idea stood a chance--the military-industrial complex incubated ambitious, but often unfeasible weaponry. We focus on the sinking of M-256, which lost 37 submariners, and the Ekranoplan, a super-secret flying ship capable of carrying thousands of soldiers or missiles over great distances at high speeds under radar detection.

    April 8-14.

    Berlin lies in ruins. Nearly 120,000 people are homeless. FDR's sudden death stuns the world. Tension among the Allies builds as the gulf of distrust between Stalin and Churchill widens. The Ruhr industrial area west of Berlin is now nearly conquered. A Nazi treasure trove of nearly 8,200 bars of gold in addition to suitcases and trunks crammed with precious ornaments and priceless works of art is uncovered. Meanwhile, the penetration of the Gothic Line begins. It's the last and most decisive Allied offensive aimed at clearing Germans out of Italy. In the Pacific, the Army's 96th Division launches an attack on Mount Shuri on Okinawa. Tokyo is hit by more massive bombing raids as US troops continue to forge ahead. These are some of the events viewers witness in this episode of our series that takes a week-by-week look at the final days of WWII.

    Steam, Steel & Dreadnoughts

    Except for setbacks inflicted by the fledgling U.S. Navy in the War of 1812, the 19th century proved a time of unchallenged mastery for the Royal Navy, with technical innovations developing at an unprecedented rate--iron and steel replaces wood and sails give way to steam power. In 1906, in an extraordinary leap forward, the supership HMS Dreadnought is launched, which sparks an arms race with Germany that helps touch off WWI, and also sows the seeds of the Royal Navy's ultimate downfall.

    America's Secret War.

    Examines U.S. intelligence gathering--from inception in the 1920s and development during WWII through the Office of Strategic Services and the Allied Intelligence Bureau. We investigate espionage during the war, the breakthrough in aerial reconnaissance technology, cracking of the Japanese naval codes by Navy intelligence, and birth of the Central Intelligence Agency. We also look at the darker side. Did the CIA strike a deal with Nazi war criminals in return for their help in the Cold War?

    Machines of D-Day.

    June 6, 1944--the greatest machine of World War Two springs into action. It is made up of thousands of ships and aircraft, tens of thousands of men and millions of tons of steel and concrete. This is Operation Overlord--the invasion machine that will send Allied soldiers dropping from the skies and storming the beaches of Normandy. Each piece of this machine has been designed to fulfill a specific task in the air, on land, or at sea. The success of D-Day depends on it. Interlocking with pinpoint precision, the men and machines of Overlord overcome not just Hitler's beach defenses, but nature itself in the greatest assault the world has ever seen. Using archive film, and color reenactments, we reveal the phenomenal hardware of D-Day.

    Secrets of the Desert War.

    In 1940, Italian dictator Benito Mussolini declared war on Britain and her allies and opened a new front in North Africa--if he could push the British out of Egypt, he could control the Suez Canal. And when Germany's Erwin Rommel and his Afrika Corps joined the fray, the stakes soared. The British could only spare a small force and used deception, camouflage, and sheer brilliance to win in North Africa, aided by virtuoso magician Jasper Maskelyne. Find out how he made the Suez Canal "disappear".
